During February and March 2011 work was carried out on one of the bogies while 169 was in the Swindon Shed at Williton.
Preparing to use the crane to lift the underframe clear of the bogie.
Looking underneath with brake rodding disconnected ready for the pin to be lifted clear.
The centre casting pin is nearly clear of the bogies - this pin is the connection between vehicle and bogie
for braking etc.
The centre casting.
The draw hook is also connected to the centre casting by the rod seen here passing through part of the underframe.
The bogie run out clear repainting has started.
Parts of the brake rigging refurbished and ready to be refitted.
Brake components ready for refitting to the bogie.
